Outdoor furniture sales are projected to grow 19.5% over the next five years, from $4.4 billion in 2015 to $5.3 billion by 2020, according to Casual Living market research and Easy Analytic Software Inc. That includes sales for dining sets, chat groups, other furniture and shade products.
Twenty-three states are expected to grow faster than the national average, with North Dakota leading the pack at a projected growth rate of 24.8%. With the help of warmer weather prolonging the outdoor season, the South dominates outdoor furniture sales among all the U.S. regions at 38%. Both the Midwest and West comprise 22% of outdoor furniture sales, while the Northeast rounds out the sales at 18%.
